Notts County v Grimsby Town U18s - Youth Team Match Preview

Grimsby Town youth team look to stretch their unbeaten run to four games in EFL North East Youth Alliance as they travel to Notts County

22 January 2020

Neil Woods’s Grimsby Town youth team look to make it four games unbeaten in EFL North East Youth Alliance as they travel to Notts County on Saturday (11am).

The young Mariners have lost just one of their previous six matches in all competitions – a 2-1 defeat to high-flying North West Youth Alliance side Fleetwood Town in the Youth Alliance Cup quarter-finals.

Town made it three league games unbeaten last time out as they beat Huddersfield Town 2-0 at Cheapside.

And they will be hoping to stretch their unbeaten run to four matches as they face fifth-place Notts County this weekend.

The Magpies are currently on 16 points from their opening 13 matches – two points ahead of eighth-place Town, who have a game in hand.

Notts have won just one of their previous seven matches in all competitions – a 5-1 away win over Huddersfield in November.

The Magpies have lost their previous three league games – 2-1 at home to Mansfield Town, 2-0 at Lincoln City, and 2-0 at Burton Albion last time out.

And they will be hoping to do the league double over Town this weekend, after they beat the Mariners 4-1 at Cheapside back in October.

After this weekend’s fixture with Notts County, Town are away at Rotherham United on Saturday, February 8 (11am).

Substitute Lennon Stead's brace helps stretch Grimsby Town youth team's unbeaten run to four matches in EFL North East Youth Alliance

Lennon Stead scores in Grimsby Town youth team's 3-2 win over Notts County

Neil Woods’s Grimsby Town youth team moved up to sixth in EFL North East Youth Alliance as they beat Notts County 3-2, thanks to substitute Lennon Stead’s brace.

The young Mariners started well, with lots of positive play and possession, but were restricted to long-range efforts for the majority of the first half, from Ayodeji Owoeye, Evan Khouri, Owen Davey and Luis Adlard.

Town moved the ball well and controlled the game but were just missing the finishing element in the final third.

And against the run of play, just before half time, Notts County took the lead as a free-kick came into the box and the Magpies player wriggled through and scored the goal.

Town came out in the same way in the second half and in the 46th minute, after some neat play by Joey Hope and Khouri to win the corner, Duncan Idehen headed home to equalise.

Town went from strength to strength creating more chances and went close again through Owoeye and Adlard.

But it was substitute Stead who found the back of the net, tapping in from Owoeye’s cross to give Town the lead.

Notts then equalised minutes later after recovering the ball deep in their own half, as their forward curled a long-range effort into the bottom corner.

But Town made it 3-2 as Stead smashed home a late penalty, after being tripped in the area, to secure all three points and stretch their unbeaten league run to four matches.

Town are back in action as they travel to Rotherham United on Saturday, February 8 (11am).
